2nd Annual Teddy Bear's Picnic

Roberta Place - Long Term Care Barrie

Much loved stuffies were  given a new lease on life!

TEDDY BEAR PICNIC – July 2015 - much loved stuffies were  given a new lease on life and a new heart to match their love at the 2nd Annual Roberta Place Teddy Bear Picnic and Repair Clinic.

We had 35 Teddy Bears needing a new person to love and we invited residents, staff kids and the community  to join us for International Teddy Bear Picnic Day.  Most of the children brought their own loved stuffie for repair and to share stories with the seniors at their home.

The result was wonderful, with volunteers re-stuffing legs and arms, sewing on button eyes, stitching gaping seams and adding a loving heart to complete the transformation. The Teddy Bear repair was a chance for an amazing senior's activity while giving the Teddy Bears a new home at Roberta Place Long Term Care.

Residents were delighted to take home a brand new bear to hug.

Of course no picnic would be complete without some ice cold lemonade! We ended the afternoon with some rousing songs that every kid – young or old knows – My Bonnie, Old MacDonald, Down by the Bay and B-I-N-G-O to the delight of all involved.
